What a lovely card to appear for Thanksgiving week (here in the US). In another nice bit of synchronicity, I will be writing the text today for the Guardian of Earth. I love the tender expression on this farmer’s face as he judges whether or not the corn is ripe for harvest.
What have we all tended this past season, dear Readers? What are we personally harvesting and giving thanks for?
At this writing, I am deep in the midst of writing, rewriting and editing the companion book for the Gaian Tarot, as well as tweaking some of the artwork for the deck when my left brain gets fried with too many words. So I am still in the tending phase of caring for my garden, yet I am harvesting as well — harvesting the pre-orders that have come in for the Gaian Tarot Limited Edition and celebrating the culmination of this long journey of creation.
When I first posted this card here two years ago, there was a very lively conversation in the comments. It’s fun and illuminating to go back and read those comments now.
I hope everyone who is celebrating Thanksgiving this week has a lovely holiday, and many blessings to all of our global friends as well. Group Hug!
